In 2018 I created this one point perspective drawing for a school project. When I first created it, I hadn’t used many different mediums and didn’t have a lot of knowledge regarding composition. I was impressed with myself because I thought that it was an original idea and that it was neat. Looking back I had a few personal critiques.
Critiquing the Original Idea:
-The shape of the paper isn’t enhanced by the drawing
-Not very neat
-Doesn’t follow most rules regarding one-point perspective
-The color palette is lacking
-Just not my style of working anymore
For the new work, I wanted to have these things in mind:
-Utilize the one point perspective in a way that enhances the work
-Incorporate the eye in a way that creates uniformity and enhances its surrounding
-Create a similar color palette
-Add/balance out the linework
-Add to the trippy effect that I was originally going for
Overall, I think that I have improved significantly as an artist. Even though the work is still lacking in certain areas, I think that I successfully enhanced the piece as a whole. I think that I am going to continue with this idea and redraw things that I really liked at the time.
